Avid readers are fluent readers: they absorb information more easily, they write better, they perform better on standardized tests.

In Keeping Kids Reading, Mary Leonhardt shows parents how to instill a love of reading in their children and how to nurture that love, in spite of the temptations of television, video games, and computers. Based on observation and interviews with students and more than twenty-five years in the classroom, Leonhardt has formulated an innovative new concept called "reading pathways" that facilitates parents' understanding of their children's taste in books. Once you recognize your children's reading patterns, you'll find it easy, using Leonardt's methods, to appeal to their individual tastes and help move them along the path to a lifelong love of reading.
